    AIDS has emerged as a serious challenge to the world today. India has 5.206 million people living with HIV and AIDS (PLWHA)(2005), although the overall HIV prevalence rate (among adult population) is low (0.91%). The study entitled ‘Socio-Economic Impact of HIV and AIDS on Households’ was undertaken by NCAER with support from UNDP and NACO in six HIV highprevalence states in India namely Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Manipur, Nagaland and Tamil Nadu. Of the six states considered for this study, Andhra Pradesh has recorded the highest prevalence of 2.00 percent among the antenatal clinic attendees and 22.8 percent among STD clinic attendees in 2005. The state accounts for an estimated 10 percent of the HIV and AIDS cases in India. This is a critical period for India’s response to the epidemic and studies of this nature are of importance at this juncture.
